WSFC Newsletter - Fall 2014

Hello Ladies,

Our WSFC 30th Anniversary Tournament September 20th was very successful.  Nothing says success like the teamwork of the gals working the tournament.  The ladies of WSFC did an outstanding job setting up headquarters, manning the registration tables, measuring all the fish that came in, and serving a hot lunch to 175 anglers.

A special thank you to Arlene and Andrea for the huge task of working all week prior to the tournament putting together the registration & judges packets, ordering trophies, securing headquarters, and organizing the food and serving lunch.  The wonderful food and delicious cake is starting to spoil these anglers just a bit.
The Florence Pancoast Memorial Trophy for the Largest Fish was a beautiful lighthouse.  It was very fitting because my Mother collected lighthouses.  Mom was WSFC’s original tournament chair, so our 30th tournament anniversary was a fitting time to honor her. 

To everyone who donated so generously to make our 30th anniversary tournament a success; thank you!

Tournament News:

WSFC has been fielding 3 teams in most of the tournaments this year.  Our ladies are fishing with some of the best anglers on the east coast.

I hope to see a real jump in the standings because of the dedication and the competitive nature of some of our fisherwomen.  It would be great to see 2 or 3 WSFC teams land in the top 10 ASAC ratings this year.  

Largest and Most fish gets points every tournament.  Check the Most and Largest standings on the ASAC site. Quite a few of you could be in the running for your first ASAC jacket.

There is still a couple of openings on the teams for the last two tournaments, November 1 and 15th.  Let me know ASAP if you are interested.

Up Coming Events

As of now, we do not have a meeting scheduled for the fall, so keep an eye on your emails for that information.

Christmas Luncheon and Meeting

The date has been set for WSFC’s Christmas Luncheon and Meeting.  Please join us on December 14th at Regina’s in Brigantine.  There will be a meeting and election of officers at from 12:00p to 1:00p, followed by lots of great food.  Remember this is a potluck party, so bring along one of your favorite dishes.  This year we ordered sunshine instead of snow.

Women's Surf Fishing Club of New Jersey, Inc

The Women's Surf Fishing Club of NJ, Inc. was organized in 1952. It was the first surf-fishing club established for women on the East Coast. The purpose of WSFC is to promote the sport of surf fishing, endorse marine conservation and inspire camaraderie among women as well as encourage participation in events that benefit women’s causes.

The club’s members are comprised of women of all ages, backgrounds, and professions. We embrace the novice angler and learn from the experienced angler. The social aspect of the club opens doors to new experiences and friendships.

The WSFC elects its officers at our annual Christmas luncheon held each year in December. Currently, Chris Pancoast is our President, Margaret Crossley, Vice-President, Andrea Tamburino, Secretary, and Arlene Perkowski, Treasurer.

The WSFC also has several committees headed by appointed chairs. The committees are Membership, Tournament, Affidavit, Marketing/PR, and Banquet. You’ll meet the current chairs of these committees throughout the website.

To join WSFC a Membership Application is filled out and submitted for approval. Once the applicant is approved, she pays dues of $25.00 by sending a check to the membership chair whose name and address is on the application.

To remain a member in good standing with WSFC, dues must be paid each year by December 31st for the following year and members must comply to our Constitution and By-Laws. Our year runs from January 1st to December 31st. We fish between 9 and 11 ASAC sanctioned Tournaments a year, hosted by other teams. The WSFC sponsors any club members who fish on our team(s). We also have a tournament program which is an intra-club competition.

Club awards and trophies are given at the Annual Awards Banquet in April. To qualify for club awards, members must have their dues up to date, attend at least two (2) club functions a year and CATCH FISH of course! Please see Tournament Program and www.asaconline.org for more information.

WSFC hosts our own ASAC sanctioned tournament each year in October. All members are urged to help out. This tournament is how we make our money for the year’s tournament fees, bait, awards, and other expenses.

The WSFC promotes “catch and release”….Therefore it is not necessary to kill your fish to be measured. NJ State laws on size and bag limits apply to all registered fish.

Schedules for the ASAC sponsored tournaments can be obtained from www.asaconline.org.
